Very nice work John.
Thank you, still workin up the stones to cut on my first rifle!
Glad to see you posting John, I’ve shared some pics of your work with a few people including a guy that does some nice knives. Always impressed by the beauty of those spurs.
I’m beginning to believe that some of you guys just have WAY to much time on your hands!
Nice work everyone
Thinkin about forging some knives this winter, too hot to turn forge on lately an still be able to breathe. Does your buddy forge the blades or use blanks?
He’s been using blanks but is working on a forge. In the meantime, he’s bought some bar stock to start practicing with temper and shaping.
Nice work @Johnjennings !!
Hopefully this fall or next spring my wife or I is going to engraving school. Already bought the tools.
Cheap and Easy....
Here is a simple extra hand when you need it.
Piece of scrap board and a cheap import needle nose vice grips that I found on a section line road close to my house.
Only cost was $0.40 cents to get a bolt at the hardware store. I have tons of assorted bolts and nuts in my workshop, but none would fit this vice grip. Some weird metric thread.
I have a heavy vise on my bench and a small clamp on one also, but this one allows good access for soldering, etc.
I made this contraption several years ago and don't use it much, but has come in mighty handy a few times.
Not a fly tier (tyer?), but might come in handy for the casual fly person.
Adjustable tension, just turn it on the bolt just you would on a regular pair of vice grips.
If you had waaay plenty room on your workbench (I don't) you could screw it down permanently...this one just sits on the shelf until I need it.
